White normativism. It annoys me when white is just the "generic" standard, and everyone just defaults to white, or assumes everyone is white unless specifically told otherwise. It pops up culturally when people draw or paint pictures of people, they're almost always white unless people are deliberately trying to include "diversity."
It's also all over advertising - women's beauty products or men's fitness models - both standards of gendered attractiveness, are uniformly white.

People who chew gum with their mouth open, lip smacking and any audible chewing noises

Waiting in a line someone will stand too close. I move away slightly and they AGAIN take a step closer.

I order one medium fry at the drive through or one coffee and they ask “is that everything?” Yes it is everything


I'll second these.

Also, people who say, "You don't have to do that," whenever you do something they wouldn't do. I know I don't have to do it. I want to do it.

When people expect me to answer the door/their phone when they're out/busy.

People who respond to text-based communication with a phone call.
Chips, popcorn, fresh veggies, gum: anything being chewed (yay! misophonia).
People standing behind me.
People who feel the need to touch me without permission (nephews and nieces get a pass, co-workers do not!).
Expecting higher levels of competency in others that you, yourself possess.

When people insist that music is math, and that being good at music means I should be good at math.
